The Vacationers...

Now that summer is here, I've made my usual promise to myself to read more... for pleasure that is!!  Everything in the summer should be for pleasure, don't you think?  I first heard of this book while listening to the Dinner Party Download on NPR and I was immediately intrigued after listening to Ms. Straub read from her book.  The dreamy book cover would have been enough for me but when I learned the story takes place in Mallorca, Spain, I had to grab a copy.  If you rather lay by the pool and listen to the story, you are in luck because it is also available on audio.  I went back and forth on that option because as much as I would like to curl up with a book, I also love listening to a good story while I relax at night and when the sun is too bright to read by the pool.

 And if you want to look the part of a vacationer, here's a little inspiration. 
What will you be reading this weekend?

You sold me too. I love a good recommendation and am an avid reader. You're right, summer reading is for pleasure and I can't wait to jump in. I always have a book on my Nook and one on my iPhone to listen to. I'm reading currently, Promise of a Pencil. FANTASTIC. I'm buying it for everybody for Christmas. So inspiring and well written. A treasure.
